The book, sub-titled 'Keeping the flame of Indian classical music alive', has profiles of several Gen Next musicians who are carrying forward the rich legacy and tradition of the art form alive.


The author, Harsh Meswani, is a musician himself. The composer has said that he was exposed to a range of music from his early days — not just classical music, but also rock and other genres.
